Very sad day today. A got her very first (I say first because I am not naive enough to think, this will be the only one) bad note from the teacher.
I opened an email from my child’s kindergarten teacher to find out that she has been making up stories and lying saying that she was told, by the teacher, she could go to the front of the line when that was not true. She also mentioned the hard time A has been having with sharing. I see that at home also. We disciplined her by not letting her watch TV for the rest of the night when that is her most favorite thing to do. I’m sure that isn’t enough but if it continues, there will be less and less TV.
I wondered what my parents used to do when I was found out for something I did. Well, I was the perfect child so I am a hard one to compare to. In our days anyways, there was more wooden objects that disciplined rather than words and discussion with us. I decided a long time ago that there would be no physical discipline in our house.
We talked to her and she knows how much we love her and how important it is to be honest. She seems to want to please us still so I am hoping that this bad behavior will end…. soon.
